|I have seven computers in a peer-to-peer workgroup. (Not using Active Directory.) I have Windows 2000 Professional on one and Windows XP Home on the rest.|
I am attempting to use the 2000 computer to copy files from the XP computers. Some of the files however are only accessible by certain users. So far, I have tried:
1) Creating a user on the XP computer with the same credentials as the 2000 computer, and allowing this user full access to the files.
2) Creating a user on the 2000 computer with the same credentials as the XP computer, logging in as this user, and attempting the transfer.
3) NET USE L: \\computername\sharename /user:username - this stated that "The command completed successfully" but the /user:username switch did not make a difference.
4) Allowing "everyone" full access to the files.
Of these, only 4) works, but is obviously less secure. In all the other cases, I can list the files, but cannot open the ones that "everyone" does not have access to.
Any advice would be appreciated.
